Hollywood Poker offers up WSOPE packages


Now that the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event is off and running, poker sites are looking for new prize packages to treat their players to. Hollywood Poker is filling in the gap with $24,000 prize packages to the upcoming World Series of Poker Europe.

"Hollywood Poker's not stopping in Vegas! We want all our players to have every opportunity to win and win big at the WSOP Europe Championships in London too!" said Hollywood Poker spokesperson Vince Van Patten, who made it through Day 1a of the 2008 WSOP Main Event on Thursday.

The WSOPE is an extension of the Las Vegas-based World Series of Poker, which made its inaugural trip to London in 2007. Back for a second year, it offers four different bracelet events including a £10,000 No-Limit Hold'em championship.

Hollywood Poker is planning to send some of its players to play in that championship event. Every other Sunday at 3 p.m. ET, from July 13 to Sept. 7, players can take part in satellite tournaments that will give away a $24,000 prize package.

The prize package includes the WSOPE championship buy-in plus money for travel and accommodations.

The satellites have a $300+$20 buy-in, but poker players can also win their way into those satellites through qualifiers that cost as little as $1.

Hollywood Poker is also sweetening the deal for its players who head to the WSOPE by offering bubble insurance.

Regardless of how you get to the WSOPE Main Event, Hollywood Poker will insure any of its players who earn 1,000 player points from July 1 through Aug. 31 at Hollywood Poker.

So if a Hollywood Player who meets that requirement goes out in the first five positions outside the money, Hollywood Poker will pay for their buy-in to the 2009 WSOPE Main Event.
